    My sister and I began talking about old school mac games we used to play on our mother's computer. There is one we can barely remember but are trying to find. The only thing we really remember is a treasure room- every time you passed a level you would get another treasure in the room- it starts off with flags, then you start getting goblets and paintings and such. My sister believes it is a maze/puzzle game, but I do not remember the details. This is very vague but that is all we can remember about it! If you can help, please do- its driving us crazy!

    You're thinking of number maze. You would have to get to the end of a maze, and at certain points you would be required to solve math problems. At the end of the maze you would get to the throne room, and find an additional piece of treasure there. I think the last pieces of treasure in the throne room might have been an actual throne, plus a banner that says 'congratulations' or something.

    On the problem solving screens you'd be presented with some kind of blockage (eg, the drawbridge would be down, there would be a brick wall, etc) and each math problem you got right would affect the blockade in some way (lower the drawbridge a little, remove a brick, etc). You would usually have to solve 3-4 math problems to get through.

    Early mazes would be small, later mazes much, much larger. In addition, some mazes would have invisible walls which only appeared when you touched them. The hardest mazes would be made almost completely of invisible walls.

    Besides that and the throne room, that's about all I can remember ... I got the game at age 5.

    For such an awesome old school game (in my opinion) it's pretty hard to find information on this one. Here's a link to some box art:
